Falslev is Mr. Do-it-all for BYU

When the Brigham Young Cougars needed someone to help fix the problems in the kickoff return department, head coach Bronco Mendenhall knew just who to call: JD Falslev.

Punting game hurts BYU more than it helps

Punting game hurts BYU more than it helps By Kurt Kragthorpe The Salt Lake Tribune Published Oct 28, 2011 11:44PM MDT Arlington, Texas • The occasion of BYU’s first punt-return touchdown in five years should have been worth celebrating Friday night.
